About Us

The Project for New Mexico Children and Youth Who Are Deaf-blind is a statewide program designed to provide technical assistance, training, and support to families, service providers, and teachers of children and youth who are deaf-blind.

The Project is responsible for maintaining an annual “Deaf-Blind Child Count Census Report” on children and youth, birth through 21 years, who live in New Mexico.

Project personnel work closely with families, service providers, and educational teams to coordinate service delivery, disseminate information regarding best practice interventions, and to facilitate improved outcomes for children who are deaf-blind.
